Librem 5 screen replacement

I’ve dropped my phone twice now and the screen is badly cracked. Couldn’t find a page on Purism’s website about replacement parts and I couldn’t find anything online. Can anyone point me in the direction of a replacement screen? Thanks!

Email support and ask if they have any. They don’t list all their replacement parts on the website.

Can you share details about how far the phone fell, how it landed, what kind of surface it hit, etc., so we all can get some idea of the force it takes to crack an L5 screen?

Sure. The first time I dropped my phone was on concrete, about a 5 foot drop. That made a fracture from top to bottom extending almost the length of the screen. The second time was on a tile floor, about 4 feet and that caused a bunch of small fractures. The phone is still 100% usable, it’s just annoying with all the cracks. I’ve certainly learned my lesson and once I fix my phone I will definitely purchase a screen protector and case.

After replacement, I suggest you to use armour case, you can find some universal models on Amazon :wink:
